I know I'll probably get a lot of 'does not meet challenge' remarks, but hopefully will not detract from the score too much.

This is one of my favorites. Congratulations for "lucky" number 13. Really well deserved.

Great image very clear and nice background - I don't care for your title, it doesn't detract from the image, but you can't take a clear photo of a fish and call it something else. - 6

The fantasy in the water is rampant. Very nice image delicately presented.

Don't know how well it fits but this is one heck of a shot. The blue background sets it off perfect

The jelly fish in focus is beautifully shot but the jelly fish on the right is distracting for me...I would have cropped it out

Great clarity and detail, decent color and good use of the rule of thirds. Technical quality is superior.

It remains to be seen how voters will relate this to the challenge topic but will probably feel its technical merit outweighs any "meet the challenge" issues they might have.

Only a couple technical suggestions. This image would benefit if noise reduction is applied. It is particually apparent in the blue background. There are two tiny specks on the upper right edge of the jellyfish that are slight distractions. Even though they are real they should be cloned out.

Overall this is one of the very best images in the challenge and should finish very high.

Hmmm...... looks like a jellyfish to me, even AFTER reading the title. A VERY nice shot of a jelly fish, but wrong challenge.

Very Nice, I'm thinking ribbon here! Everything is Excellant!

Neat picture. I think it would look even better if the jelly fish in the background were cloned out. It seems out of place...like you had cloned around it.

I wonder if you'll get the "doesn't meet the challenge" comments on this. I'm scoring it high 1. it is compositional and technically a beautiful, well done pleasing to the eye photo 2.I'm looking at it as a visual metaphor/simile based on the title.
